Pekoppa, Robotic Therapy


We admit it. We talk to our plants, but somehow they never respond back with the same enthusiasm. Sega Toys launched the Pekoppa ("Nodding Leaf") a while back that not only will listen to you, but will respond by fluttering its leaves and bending its stem. Spokesperson Minako Sakanoue claims that the sound-sensored gadget would be good for therapy or as encouragement for those who are making sales pitches by phone. There must be a lot of lonely people in Japan as they have already sold about 50,000 of the $26.00 gadgets since their launch last September. Sega is also planning to release a flower version in June for ~$30.00. Hmmm, where have we seen these before?
